Sugar Butterfly Cupcakes

I have been busy baking a huge batch of cupcake for a friend's little princesses birthday. The request was simply pink and lilac butterflies, so i turned my had to a whole new world of sugar paste, cutters, colouring and modelling.

After experimenting a little with modelling, colouring and cutters i think me and sugarpaste could become friend.

For this little project i used the ready coloured sugarpaste in baby pink and lilac and small and medium sized cutters. To give the butterflies the open wing effect i left the cut pieces of sugarpaste to dry over the fold of a piece of cardboard topped with greasproof paper.

To add a little sparkle i sprayed the cakes with silver shimmer spray.
